April 11.?The Georgia petition is signed
by Black, Brent, Cowan and O'Connor, with
the certificate of tho Governor of Georgia
attached. It - prays an injunction against
Stanton, Graut and Popo. The proceedings of
the Court to-morrow are looked for with intense
Charles .O'Connor, in the Supreme Court ,
to-day, asked leave to hand to the Clerk a
copy of tho petition of the State of Georgia,
which to-morrow he intends to ask leave to file;
the Court said that ho could do so.
Attorney-General Stansbcrry said that this
petition differed from that of Mississippi, in
the fact that the President was made a party
to the injunction, and he further stated that
Stanton in behalf of the military authori
ty, had requested him to take entire
control of the defence. The court was re
quested hut declined to take any order us to
the arrangement for arguing this question.
It is probable, however, that the motion to file
two petitions will he jointly argued.
A resolution was passed in the Senate, call
ing on the President for any legal opinion
officially given him regarding the Tenure of
Resolutions fixing the day for adjournment,
occasioned characteristic debate, and developed
the fact, that the Senate is willing to divide
affairs, half Radicals and half Democrats: hut
the President is firm- in his determination to
adhere to his friends. Tu reply to the argu
ment that unless the President yielded during
the recess, placing persons in office objectionable
to the Senate, he should he put out of the way
in July. Mr Fcsscndcn replied that the
President, equally with tho Senate, was part of
the Government, and might, with equal
propriety, threaten to put the Senate out of
tho way, unless it accepted his measures. The
whole question of adjournment was indefinitely

advice"of his right, the Senate failing to con
firm nominations, to fill offices vacated previously
to the passage of the Tenure of Office Bill
APRIL 12.?In the Supreme Court to-day
the emotion was- made to file the Mississippi
The Chief Justice said that the motion to file a
bill was usually granted as a mat ter of course,
but that, if it was suggested that the bill con
tained matter scandalous or unfit to come before
the court, the court examined it or referred it
to a master. In the present case the Attorney
General objected to the bill as containing mat
ter unfit to be brought before the court, and
that was the only point that could then be
considered. Upon that point the court would
accordingly first hear the Atorncy-Goncral.
Mr. O'Connor announced that he and his
associates were in attendance, in case it should
be docided to argue both bills. The Attorney
General said that the Georgia bill lacked the
point upon which he proposed to oppose the
filing of the Mississippi bill. The Mississippi
bill was, in a legal sense, scandalous, as it pro
posed making the President a defendant before
the court. Judge Sharkoy said that hp had
amended the bill to proceed against tho Pres
ident, as a citizen of Tennessee. The At
torncy-Gcucral read a portion of the bill,
claiming that it was manifestly against the
President as President. He alluded to the
somewhat similar process issued against Mr.
?Jefferson in tho Burr trial. Mr.' Jefferson
did not obey or even notice tho process, lie
said, that as an officer, he (the Attorney-Gen
eral), should advise the President to disregard
the subpoena; and he proceeded to explain the
effect of this course if the'Court should persist
and tho President remain firm. The Court,
to maintain its dignity, would have to imprison
the President for contempt. Ife maintained
that the President equally with the Kings of
England, was exempt from proceedings of this
kind, He could only be brought before the
bar of the Senate after impeachment. Courts
could punish the President for acts committed
while President, but the President was beyond
their jurisdiction as long as he occupied the

has unanimously decided not to rcceivo tho
Mississippi injunction bill, on the ground that,
it has no jurisdiction whero an application is
made for an injunction against the President
of tho United States. As the Georgia bill of
injunction did not mako the President a party

The Spring Term of the Court of General
Sessions and Common Pleas, has been iu ses
sion durijig the entire week. His Honor
FRANKLIN d. Moses is the presiding Judge;
and upon this, his first judicial visit to Orange
burg, he has already acquired the affections and
highest regards of our people. With all the
dignity which becomes the Ren eh, with all the
varied store of legal learning which fits him to
the impartial arbiter of the keen disputes of
counsel, ho is, withal, a practical man, not
viewing the affiairs of every day life at a pro
fessional distance, but dealing with them hand
to hand, as tho history of the.times. In his
charge to the Grand Jury, which was singu
larly interesting and impressive, His Honor
adverted to the distressed pecuniary and politi
cal situation of our people, advised earnestly
that every one not disfranchised by the recent
Congressional legislation should exercise his
rights of suffrage in the reconstruction of the
State Government; and that till classes of the
people of both colors, should work harmonious
ly together iu achieving this end. That those
who had formerly been masters, to whom
iheir slaves had been accustomed to look for
guidance and control, should accept the situa
tion in good faith, and by their continued
kindness to their lute bondsmen, protect them
from becoming the misguided dupes of stran
gers, in the exercise of the important civil
rights they have just acquired. We wish that
every citizen of the District bad been present
to hoar this eloquent charge.
Upon the first day of the Court, the military
order of Gen. Sickles, which will be found
elsewhere in our columns, was received in the

Mit. K?lTOR?Superficially there is, in re
gard to political matters here, a complete stag
nation, but only superficially. The Radical
agents and exponents are quietly out energeti
cally laboring for the accomplishment of their
nefarious ends, and I much fear that their
efforts will be far from futile. Night and day,
by specious and attractive arguments; by
gilded promises; by fair means and foul, the
negroes are being thoroughly prepared to es
pouse and adhere to the tenets of the Uuien
Republican Party. An officer, holding high
position in the Freodman's Bureau, stated at a
dinner party a few evenings since, that he
kneie that our adversaries were awake and ac
tive, and that the negroes were being organized
under their auspices with fearful rapidity; he
added that unless the conservative elements of
our population exert themselves, the result of
the ensuing elections was beyond doubtful specu
lation, and urged his auditors to be "up and
doing." I am entirely convinced of the truth
fulness of his statement, mid as thoroughly
persuaded of the correctness of the policy
which he advised. We must shake; off our
apathy; we must bury our pride ; our influence
with the colored people must be regained and
exerted, and that of our mortal opponents neu
tralized or destroyed, or our political doom is
fixed. The results of the universal suffrage
experiment is of vital importance to us. 1 f

unfortunate one. They have no hopes that the
Court will declare the unconstitutional!! v of a
deliberately adopted measure of the the Legis
lative Power of the country, and if it should,
many fear that the trials, and difficulties, and
humiliation of our situation will be augmented,
not dissipated. Congress, hacked by a majority
of the people of the North, is determined todic
t?te their own terms of reconstruct ion. '1 i:.' i n

The general d ? itution prevailing among
the population of this Military District cannot
be rein ved without affording means for the
development of their industrial resources.
The nature and extent of the destitution de
mand extraordinary measures. The people
are !?;:;..? down by a, heavy burden of debt ;
I ho crops uf grain and ga rden produce failed
i.t ; year ; nuiir, lamilie's have en deprived
of shelter; many more need food and clothing;
needful implements and auxiliaries of husband
ry are very scarce; the laboring population in
numerous'] icalities are threatened with starva
tion, unless supplied with food by the Govern
ment of the United States;.the inability of a
large portion of the people to pay taxes leaves
the local authorities without adequate means
of relief; and the gravity of the situation is
increased by the general disposition shown by
creditors to enforce, upon an impoverished
people, the immediate collection of all claims.
To stiller all this to go on without restraint
or remedy is to sacrifice the general good.
The rights of creditors shall be respected; but
the appeal of want and suffering must be.
heeded; Moved by thes considerations, the

will continue in force, with such modifications
as the occasion may require, until the civil
government of the respective States shall be
